Ladies and gentlemen, you’re about to meet the go-to guy for magical entertainment in Baltimore and DC. For over twenty years, companies like Frito-Lay, Lockheed Martin, Toys R Us, and AOL have relied on this gentleman to entertain their families with the impossible! Please join me in welcoming the Explorer of the Impossible: Peter Wood!
Peter Wood entertains audiences with the impossible. Blending amazing objects, incredible skills, and unique presentations, he is the go-to guy for great events in Baltimore and Washington, DC.
For more than two decades, Peter’s magical presentations have been enjoyed by top companies, including Frito-Lay, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, USA Today, World Bank, and Adobe. Government organizations, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Naval Research Laboratory, United States Census Bureau, Federal Transit Administration, and Marine Corps Barracks also rely on his unique abilities.
When Washington’s elite and Baltimore’s movers-and-shakers need entertainment, they rely on Peter to mystify their most discerning, well-traveled colleagues and guests. He’s opened for Full House’s Dave Coulier, shared the stage with living legends at the Comedy and Magic Society, and entertained several United States ambassadors and their families.
Peter’s travels have taken him to private dining rooms, massive auditoriums, and all venues in between. Whether appearing at the Hippodrome Theater, on a private yacht in National Harbor, or inside F.B.I. headquarters, Peter can fill any space with his unparalleled showmanship and enthusiasm.
In 2011, Peter partnered with the International Spy Museum to develop an exclusive stage program, which showcases the similarities between magic and espionage. He continues to appear at the Museum for numerous public and private events, and is even featured in an interactive Museum exhibit.
Peter is the recipient of a silver American Advertising Award, and multiple Lindsay Crawford Originality Awards, the latter judged by his peers in the Society of American Magicians local chapter. He was also the subject of a feature story in the Baltimore Sun, has appeared in Baltimore Magazine and DramaBiz Magazine, and has been a repeat guest on Fox 45 Morning News.
When not performing, Peter’s specific skillset has led him to design and consult for film projects, theatrical productions, and his fellow performers. He worked behind the scenes on the groundbreaking Penn & Teller Masterclass in Las Vegas, and his creations have appeared in several film festivals, as well as stages in Sweden, Brunei, New York, and at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Peter currently resides with his wife and daughter in Mount Airy, Maryland.
